The SDF has called on all its MPs and Senators to return to Parliament and perform the duty assigned to them by the party and the people.

Barrister Agbor Balla's house in Bakwelle burnt the night breaking Sunday October 29. A note left by the arsonists warns him for putting to danger what they have taken till date to struggle for. Thanks to the timely intervention of good Samaritans the fire was put out. His father's grave was also desecrated.


Barrister Balla has been selling like hot cake after his recent outing on BBC calling for effective school resumption and solving the anglophone crisis as one and united Cameroon. He equally accused secessionists as reason why most people are in jail today. His message seemed to not have gone down well with most people especially on social media.

The 48-year-old, known for his lavish tastes, is the son of the oil-rich West African country's president.

He was absent from the trial, where he was found guilty of embezzlement.

 

His assets in France will be seized, including a mansion on Avenue Foch in Paris. He also got a suspended fine of 30m euros (£27m; $35m).

In November, Swiss prosecutors seized 11 luxury cars belonging to Mr Obiang. They said he had plundered his country's oil wealth to buy luxuries, including a private jet and Michael Jackson memorabilia.

The case against Theodorin was triggered by anti-corruption campaign group Transparency International and a similar NGO, called Sherpa.
Mr Obiang denied the charges, saying his wealth had come from legitimate sources. His lawyers accused France of "meddling in the affairs of a sovereign state", AFP news agency reported.

In 2000-2011 Mr Obiang acquired a collection of luxury assets and properties in France, including the €25m Avenue Foch mansion. He also boasted 18 luxury cars in France, artworks, jewellery and expensive designer fashions, the court found.

It is the first of three French investigations into the alleged "ill-gotten gains" of long-standing African leaders and their families.
The French daily Le Monde reports that the family of Gabon President Ali Bongo has 39 French luxury properties, while 24 are owned by the family of Congo-Brazzaville's President Denis Sassou-Nguesso. They also have about 200 bank accounts, French police say.

Expectations are rife as the President of the Republic, Paul Biya returned home last October 21, 2017 to face the degenerated Anglophone crisis exactly one month after he took part at the United Nations 72nd General Assembly in New York, USA. Hot on the table of the Head of State is certainly the socio-political crisis in the two Anglophone regions of the North West and South West that degenerated into popular unrest last September 22, 2017 and October 1, 2017.

Many Cameroonians believe that away from the country, President Paul Biya reflected on the way forward and took several resolutions on how to tackle the one year crisis given that repressive measures have proven their limitations as they rather fan the populations’ anger and determination to forge ahead with more radical demands.


Accompanied by the First Lady, Mrs Chantal Biya, the President of the Republic arrived the nation capital on the same day the Prime Minister, Head of Government, Philemon Yang and other top government officials rounded up a one week consultations with the populations of the North West and South West Regions on the best peaceful method to end the crisis.
It is highly expected that the President of the Republic will personally solve the crisis as requested by the population of the two Anglophone regions especially as he declared openly his intention to use meaningful dialogue to frustrate the plans of secessionists and promote a one and indivisible Cameroon he has always dreamt of.
The request for President Biya to unconditionally release the remaining Anglophones still under detention as well as those continuously arrested in order to facilitate grounds for meaningful and frank dialogue to begin has been emerging from different fronts.
While political pundits argue that the President of the Republic took up time to maybe prepare a new government highly expected in the days ahead, other critics counter that, it is disturbing for him to have stayed away from his home as leader at the time his country is still burning with the Anglophone crisis.
The nation now holds its breath as citizens look up to the Unity Palace occupant with a lot of hope that Cameroon may soon regain its long enjoyed peace and stability.
